    The grants seminar will include information about the grant process, how to make your proposal stand out, and pitfalls to avoid when submitting a grant application. Staff and grants committee members will be on hand to answer questions participants might have regarding the grant application process. Organizations that have never submitted an application to the Horseshoe Foundation and are interested in doing so this spring are encouraged to attend.
    The Foundation is accepting grant applications for the fall grant cycle. Applications must be received at the foundation office or postmarked by September 30. All previous final grant reports must be completed. Charitable organizations, educational institutions, and governmental agencies which benefit Floyd County citizens and fit the grant guidelines are welcome to apply.
    Grant program guidelines, policies and grant application forms are available on the Foundation’s website www.horseshoefoundation.org. Paper copies of the applications and annual reports are available at the Carnegie Center for Art and History, the Floyd County Library, and the Horseshoe Foundation’s 3rd floor Office at the Scribner Place YMCA. It is recommended that all potential applicants download or obtain new copies of the grant application packages at any of these locations since some changes have been made to the process.
    The Horseshoe Foundation is pleased to celebrate 10 years in Floyd County. Since its inception, the Foundation has given $18.3 million dollars to the Floyd County community.
